What's New2013.2 -- Quick update to fix some out-of-date information that accidentally slipped out in the previous release.
State Lines has been majorly updated to start 2013!
1) Major database update - all data refreshed, re-checked and verified.
2) Addition of 10 new fields - Child Safety Seats, U-turns, Keep Right, Alcohol & Cigarette taxes and more Motorcycle Laws (eye protection, daytime headlights and lane sharing),
3) Screens re-organized by similar types of laws/regulations (Shopping, Driving, Bans, RVing, Protection, etc.)
4) Updated for iOS6 and iPhone 5 screen support.
We've decided to continue keeping State Lines updated for free for now, as we've not found the time to pursue the full re-write we intended. If you like 'State Lines' and find it useful in your travels, please tell your friends - and leave a review on iTunes. Your positive reviews help encourage others to purchase the app, which helps continue funding the free updates! Thank you!
App DescriptionBecause some things change when you cross the line...
Compiled after over 6+ years of full time RV road-tripping across the USA, State Lines is an indispensable travelerâ€™s guide to highly variable state laws and regulations.
Currently State Lines tracks over 55 pieces of travel relevant information for each of the 50 states; including cell phone & texting bans, seat belt & child safety seats, state sales tax & exemptions, gas/diesel taxes, bottle deposits, time zones, towing & RV specific laws, rest area overnight parking limits, state park camping entrance fees, default speed limits, radar detectors, highway emergency #s, alcohol sales laws & taxes, smoking bans, open container laws, pet leash laws, bicycle helmet laws, motorcycle laws (helmet, lights, eye protection & lane sharing), left turns on red, u-turns, keep right and more.
State Lines is location aware, so it can automatically show you information about nearby states. The entire State Lines database is integrated into the application, so State Lines works when you are out of cellular or WiFi coverage.
When you visit a new state, have you ever wondered:
Can I txt and drive?
Is the sales tax lower across the border?
Will the gas tax be cheaper here?
Can I buy real beer in the grocery stores?
Can I overnight in rest areas?
Is smoking allowed in restaurants?
Are radar detectors legal?
Can I make a left turn on red?
Are helmets required?
Do I have to pay a bottle deposit?
State Lines is an essential application for anyone traveling around the United States - whether by RV, car, train, bike, plane, or boat. No matter how you travel, if youâ€™re frequently crossing state lines, you need State Lines.
State Lines is a growing project, and we welcome feedback on ideas for other useful state specific information to include in future versions. Please let us know what else you would like us to track!
NOTE; State Lines is intended to provide an at-a-glance summarized guide to rules and regulations, and it is not an exhaustive legal reference. While every effort has been made to provide quality up to date data, no warranty for accuracy of data is expressed or implied. State Lines assumes no responsibility for how you utilize the data. Keep in mind, local regulations can often override state level rules (so while a state may not have a cell phone ban, a city may - which will not be reflected in State Lines), and laws frequently change. Always verify with the proper authorities before assuming anything.
We will be keeping State Lines up to date by doing periodic updates to our research - usually twice a year. This is a time consuming manual research process, and we appreciate your patience and understanding that State Lines may be a few months behind new law changes. You can help tho - if you do discover any out-of-date information in State Lines, please contact us at email@example.com. Thanks!
